We love retelling the nativity story every year during Advent. This year we each chose one part to focus on, Nadira chose Mary. Here Mary is doing her dishes, just everyday chores. And then comes this angel greeting Mary. She pondered over Mary’s feelings, her reactions to the angel and her greeting to her, Mary’s dreams etc.
What was so special was this Christmas Eve service the preacher focused on Mary? He invited us to ponder with him – Mary did you know? Mary gave herself to God and didn’t delay God’s plan for the world through her. Mary did you know…that God will be born through you, He did come as a baby but did not stay a baby, He grew up and died, but He did not stay dead, He rose again. He sat at right hand of God’s throne…and He Will Come Again!!!!
This same Son of God who came and met Jesus while she was going about her everyday faithfully Will meet you where you are. He will change your life, not just for yourself but for the whole world. God’s story is your story.
